I’ve been noticing the connections between Twitter and sacred space. To some, this may seem absurd; to others, outrageous. I’m not talking about those hushed, rarified places where a whisper shatters the holy apple cart. The sacred spaces to which I relate Twitter are pilgrimage sites teeming with a cacophony of seekers, chanting, rituals, storytelling, offerings, hawkers, con artists, recitations of scriptures and countless other activities. Places such as Varanasi, Bodhgaya, Lourdes, Mecca and countless others are gathering places for the multitudes looking for connection, inspiration, guidance, information and wisdom.

I love this perspective! Sometimes we get the mindset that the modern technology and subsequent internet socializing of our world are “anti”-sacred. To imagine Twitter as the space of the Chartres Cathedral, where all are welcome, loved and honored is a wonderful feeling! We’ve recently created something similar with a Facebook site and the response is amazing! The pilgrims are still taking the journey, the seekers continue to quest and the Spirit is ever present within each of us. Much love to you and thank you for stretching our thinking a bit more in line with our time. xo
